DA42 prop overhaul

Post by TJS »

What is the cost to overhaul the MT prop on the DA42? I heard someone say that the overhaul was only available in Germany.
What is the price new?

IIRC I paid something like 15k.

I paid €17k for two Scimitar props (MT kept old blades) including rebuilding TKS installation when I was replacing engines.

That seems like a great upgrade. I'll be looking to do the same when it comes time to replace the engines.

I have a recent quote for 4.500€ (w/o VAT) to overhaul one prop..... (not including the Accu, which has a different timing)

Bumping this thread. Our plane is in the shop and some suspected delamination was found on one blade.

OH price was $7500 per side at American Propeller. Does that sound right? For reference: these are 3-blade scimitars on a -VI. 1300 hours on them, 6 years old.

Based on my experience, this price is in the ballpark. But they're also astonishingly expensive to ship. Typical round-trip price for a single 3-blade prop was about $1,300.
